Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable Internet applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of Internet users much more effectively than any other platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms that handle the info in massive chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, when a user needs to fill several fields on a site, Node.js processes the info in the first field the moment it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it truly does make a difference when an enormous number of individuals are browsing a website at the same time. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words websites that support quick real-time interaction.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
If you host a web app on our advanced cloud platform and you’d like to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the shared website hosting plan that you are using. This can be done via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this feature to your account. You will be able to select how many instances you would like to add to the account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can define the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether the file in question will be accessible via the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also designate a port for the connection. You’ll be able to shut down or to restart each instance separately, in case it’s necessary.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated packages offer Node.js, so in case you want to run any real-time application on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to take advantage of the power that the system can give you with only several clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you wish to use Node.js for different web sites, you’ll be able to choose the amount of active instances, one instance being one application. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use GUI, you will need to specify the location of the .js file for each instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will assign a random port number to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to check the output of each of your apps or to discontinue/reboot each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
All VPS hosting packages that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can use the event-driven platform for each web app that you run on the Virtual Private Server.

The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use, point & click graphical interface, so even if you aren’t technically experienced, you will not need to deal with any problems while working with the Node.js platform. You will simply have to indicate the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also designate a port number to access this file and you’ll be able to see it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just one click of the mouse, you can see the output of your apps and to discontinue or to reboot any instance hosted on the server.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated web hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make use of the event-driven platform as soon as your dedicated machine is set up. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is pretty user-friendly, you will be able to make that without having to deal with any difficulty, even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will need to do on your end is insert the path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can activate as many instances as you need on our stunningly powerful servers and each of them can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to stop it, to check the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done via the simple-to-use, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of the Node.js platform effortlessly.
